Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan and Spaghetti in 22 Minutes

This is the perfect gluten free meal made in less than 22 minutes. Thanks to your own marinara or gluten free jarred pasta sauce and the Bell and Evans Gluten Free Chicken Tenders (Costco) you can make this dinner faster than the time it takes to order a pizza. Follow the steps in order to assure you are multi-tasking correctly.

Gluten free spaghetti
Marinara Sauce
Chicken Tenders
Parmesan Cheese for Sprinkle

Pre Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Fill your pasta pot with the correct amount of water and bring it to a boil. While you are waiting for the water to boil, assemble the frozen chicken breast tenderloins in a pyrex baking pan. Heat 2 cups of sauce in the microwave until hot, and heat the remaining 4 cups of sauce on the stove next to the water. Spoon the hot sauce over the frozen chicken so that it is only partially covered. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
then seal with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Cook the pasta to aldente, then rinse under cold water to stop the cooking and keep the pasta from getting mushy. Drain well. Combine the pasta and sauce and toss to coat. Plate the spaghetti and remove the chicken from the oven.Check to be sure it is cooked through (this brand of frozen chicken tenders are uncooked) before placing the fillets on top of the pasta. Serve with a garden salad or broccoli and garlic.

inhale this meal and it is so easy. The leftovers freeze great, especially in individual ziploc freezer containers. You can zap one as needed for lunch or when the gluten free diner needs to take a meal on the go.

They do not have those gluten free chicken tenders at our Costco. WHY? WHY? WHY?

Ask them to order thhem for you. My Costco carried them for a month or two then suddenly they were gone- I filled out a card at customer service and shazam, they were back this last week.

This huge bag is $12 and while you will be Martha Stewarting your ass off with your backyard chickens, these pre killed, pre gluten free breaded, already frozen ones work fine for this Jewish American Princess.

Oh, and the bag is $12.78- see if you can make them for less, I dare you.
